There is an update for the computer that fixes ruogh idle, trans shift probs. other little things like that. I'd take it to the dealer and have them make sure you ahve the newest update. I did and it fixed alot of that type of crap. They had some problems updating mine (because of an aftermarket stereo) but they had to take out the stereo fuse and it took. Just some FYI.

I had the same problem with my canyon, it ended up being a bad O2 sensor

Throttle Body cleaning and a new fuel filter solved this problem for me..
